Thought-Provokers: Glendale

Phoenix has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Glendale that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Tj Roxas

I’ve always been a creative; whether it was music, theater, dance, poetry, etc. I thrived on the process of making and molding art with my hands and mind. I starting photography in college as a hobby. I was mainly shooting my friends in bar bands, as well as friends who were dancers and ballerinas. Read more>>

I planned to go into biological sciences, but on a whim picked up a camera instead. I fell in love with capturing and creating art. I met my husband while I was in college and got married young, at age 20. We’ve been married for two years now and have a little baby boy. Read more>>

Keith Harder

I grew up drawing all the time as a kid, before during and after school. I soon traded in my pencil for a skateboard, music and a job, the art stopped at that point. Many years later a few buddies of mine invited me to a First Friday and inspired me back in to the art scene. Read more>>

Faith “Kat” Stevenson

I taught myself, using an old iPhone before a lot of family pitched in to buy me the canon camera I now use. Photography became a way for me to bypass my physical limitations, it enabled me to be involved and to express myself. Read more>>

Danielle White

For as long as I can remember I have loved all aspects of art. I took as many art classes as I could during my high school years. After high school, I went to a community college where I studied Liberal Arts with a sequence in Studio Art. I didn’t complete college, and the rest of my learning has been self taught. Read more>>

Erika Ulloa

Margaret Golonka

I have always been interested in the ability to tell stories through art. Inspired to create my own stories, I started drawing when I was in middle school and continued throughout high school, but when I was deciding what to study in college I didn’t think I could make a career in art. Read more>>

Keith Decesare

I am a self-taught artist, taking a course here and there if I can. School was never my thing though. Now I learn everything I can from the interwebs, conventions and fellow artists. I love talking with other creative people! I still draw the robots, road warriors and monsters. However, it’s different when you know how. Read more>>

My favorite part of this business is working with customers and creating the piece they have always envisioned for themselves. I am SO blessed to have such a great support system, and all of my friends and family who have had faith in my work and my life! Read more>>

Pash Galbavy

I’ve always cared deeply about the earth and its inhabitants. When I was 16-years old, I was arrested a couple of times for blockading at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant. Lately, I’ve been using my art to demonstrate how our inner lives impact the world. Read more>>
